Gems, Giggles & Geramiums, Oh My
Once again, what a fabulous party. The things the guests brought this time around, are no different than any of the link parties before. Awesome stuff people. Awesome.
My etsy friend and Treasury Island teammate Marci has a wonderful jewelry shop called 3Pearls. You should see some of her crocheted bead bracelets (how do you do that by the way? want to do a tutorial Marci??). That said, although she brought one of her crocheted lovelies to the party, that's not what caught my eye. When I popped by her shop again, I saw this beautiful tourmaline necklace. It's a favorite for obvious reasons.
Another one of my etsy friends and another etsy Treasury Island teammate, Kate- aka Miss Vintage, owns Storytellers Vintage. She really finds some of the best stuff. Like this backpack. Oh the stories it could tell.
You know what's always been really fun about the link party for me? I get to see some familiar faces, but also make new friends. Here I was, making my way around the room when I ran into Giggles and Toots. Well, right off - LOVE the name. Toots is a thing in my family. We'll have to blame it on my Dad. He calls us toots. So I've come to call my nieces toots. In fact two of my nieces named their turtle Toots because of it. See why I love the name? Back to the party. Look what I found when I got to know Giggles and Toots a little better.
Cute sleeptime owl. What kid wouldn't want to rest their head on this pillow at night?
Or how about sweet dreams? This chenille this pillow is made of looks SO soft!
If you want to wake up your senses, then how about a little stroll through a perfectly wonderful Spring greenhouse thanks to Sweet Posy Dreams.
Lynette and I are obviously of the same thinking......I always use Geraniums in my window boxes and in my backstoop planter. Love 'em and they shout Memorial Day to me, mostly because that's when I'm usually planting them.
The excitement of Spring. Something new each day. Scratch that. The excitement of a new house! Woohoo! So happy to find out that Paige at Little Nostalgia and her husband have found a new home. Moving from their condo has been on their list, but finding the right home in their budget seemed daunting. Now they can check it off their list. Another thing I love about blogging, is you get to share in these wonderful moments. The bedroom redo that Paige was planning is now officially ON HOLD, for the best kind of reason. Congratulations Paige!
I really enjoy these get togethers, exploring your blogs, your stores and getting know you all a little better. I hope you enjoy them too.

I missed submitting in time for the 'Into the Sun' challenge, but here's my entry/ies (I always find it hard to choose) for you guys to see. A beautiful day at the beach. In January no less.
G-man just looked out the window and said, "It's lashing." A very wet day here, for now at least. Hoping it clears up a little bit sooner than they expect. Guess we have to have the rainy days to make the sunny days that much better.
Enjoy the day, whatever it is doing, in your corner of the world and we'll do the same here. What is it dong in your corner of the world? Is the sun shining or do you have your wellies on? What's on your agenda for the day? Ours includes inventory for Lia Artisan Concrete Designs, and the projects on my desk for Speakeasy include bumper sticker and t-shirt design, ad campaign planning and bookwork.
Ciao for now,
